Description of the activity

The volunteer program in Cyprus was implemented to expand the knowledge of people of the collaborative functions of the EU in the wider society by allowing volunteers to engage with local populations that had not had the chance to engage with any of the successful initiatives of the European Union, such as the ability to work or intern in the whole of the EU using the EU solidarity corps and to discuss contested issues and gauge the popular opinion about the EU by the people, thus engaging in a meaningful discussion about EU citizenship, within an EU structure, that is this program. Volunteers and staff participated in two widely popular fairs as well as other organizations and spread the message of Europe being on the ground for local actions and the protection from local interest groups with its wide ranging legislative agenda.
